British Moms have a Big Problem with Fingerlings

WowWee Fingerlings are also popular in the UK, with one slight problem.

The Fingerlings are the most popular Holiday toy of 2017 not just in the United States. WowWee's Fingerlings are also in demand in the UK. There is though a problem in the UK with the name Fingerling.

There a sexual meaning to the word Fingerling in Great Britain. Parents are embarrassed to ask for a Fingerling in stores and are express outrage over the choice of the name according to The Sun newspaper. I have not seen any issue with the term Fingerling in the US, appears to be an isolated issue for Brits. The Urban dictionary has the definition of the word fingerling in case you need to know (NSFW).

The New York Times profiled the WowWee designer who came up with the idea for Fingerlings, and she is a woman. It's a very neat success story for the Canadian toy maker, who was one of the first robot toy makers. WowWee is not done releasing new Fingerlings for the Holidays. Two new baby unicorns are hitting ToysRUs stores this weekend. The Walmart exclusive Sloth also got company. Since last week there is a purple sloth named Marge.

Last Friday was a big Fingerlings day. Amazon has sold a wide range of Fingerlings for hours. Walmart has also restocked Fingerlings online on Friday and sold for the first time the exclusive sloth Kingsley online. Fingerlings will very likely be in stock again on Friday at Amazon and maybe also Walmart.
